Setting the Record Straight

Ida B. Wells Center on American Exceptionalism and Restorative Justice seeks to set the record straight on the tirelessly misrepresented fact that America’s founding generation legally owned black people during colonial times. The untruthful, virulent, and unchallenged claim that blacks born within the North American colonies were legal slaves at birth and owned by slaveholding patriots (i.e., George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison), during colonial times created the superstructure for structural racism within the U. S. and white supremacy ideals and dogma interwoven in today’s American culture.

The truth of the matter is slavery was prohibited by English law and became a byproduct of colonial tyranny and greed. America have hidden the criminal culpability of slaveholding colonists by elevating slaveholding patriots to hero status to normalize criminal enslavement and exploitation of 500,000 black Englishmen during and after America’s Revolutionary War.

Our not-for-profit arm, SEA-Change serves as an intellectual forum to discuss and formulate conclusions on the criminality of slavery in colonial America.

Exploring Slavery During Colonial Times

SEA-Change scholastic program addresses race-based disparity issues stemming from structural racism and government accountability for misanthrope horrors, practices and exploitation of Blacks in colonial America. We support the advancement of the idea that racial injustice and economic disparity in America today is the product of a colonial times criminal scheme on the part of White English subjects against Black English subjects, furthered, refined and closeted by the U. S. government. We advance perspectives, ideas and propositions, in addition to reviews and critiques of opposing topical white papers and published studies, on the social constructs, cultural beliefs and behavioral practices surrounding slavery during colonial times.


SEA-Change works in concert with the Ida B. Wells Center on American Exceptionalism and Restorative Justice and the Sons & Daughters of the Enslaved to serve as a forum for academic review, analysis and intellectual advancement and discourse in the research and findings on the issue of black exploitation and criminal slavery in colonial America. We engage academia by bringing research and proffering findings for academic review, analysis and advancement and debate and then to U. S. policymakers and stakeholders, as Black English subjects were systematically exploited to serve as the bedrock of the U. S. slave pool and economy, in violation of the Definitive Treaty of Peace of 1783, as verified and validated in historical records in the Book of Negroes and historical registries preserved in England and the United States.


SEA-Change seeks to actively engage people across the globe in the advancement of varied perspectives, strategies, and conclusions on the criminality of enslavement. This engagement leads to congressional action, social change, community awareness, and legal recourse for the sons & daughters of enslaved seeking restorative and reformative justice through change. Through the placement of op-eds in print media and the vocalization of restoration and reformative justice via visual platforms, we articulate and communicate the perpetration and perpetuation of criminal activity of the founding fathers in the enslavement of Black Englishmen and kidnapped Africans, who served as the bedrock of America’s slave pool.


SEA-Change seeks to catalyze creative ideas, propositions, perspectives, strategies, and conclusions in addressing systemic race-based issues, policies and practices rooted in America’s exploitation and criminalization of blacks and England’s abandonment and disenfranchisement of Black Englishmen in colonial AmericaSEA-Change goal will provide substantive proof and authoritative support in the reimagining and reframing racial disparity issues stemming from the founding fathers criminal enslavement of Black Englishmen and kidnapped Africans in early America, and America’s intentional violation of refusing the release of English subjects in accord with the 1783 Treaty of Peace.
